Upcoming Events

Wednesday, October 18, 2017 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm ET

On October 18, 2017, WaterISAC will convene its monthly Water Sector Cyber Threat Briefing. For this month’s briefing, Mr. Matt Tooley of NCTA – the Internet and Television Association – and Mr. Joe Viens of the Communications ISAC will brief about the growing threat of bots. A bot is a code used to seize control of a computer or an Internet-connected device to form a network of infected machines, known as a botnet. Mr. Tooley and Mr. Viens will describe how bots propagate, how increasing numbers of unsecure Internet of Things (IoT) devices have allowed bots to grow into a global security threat, and how Internet users can work collaboratively to neutralize the threat. The webcast will also feature a briefer from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security ICS-CERT, who will address new industrial control system vulnerabilities, situational awareness updates, and opportunities for additional support and learning. Register at GoToWebinar.
